One year makes a difference September corn yield forecast far better than 2012

by Greg Forbes As the 2013 harvest nears, yield predictions become clearer. On September 13, USDA-NASS released the monthly corn yield forecast, which predicted a statewide yield average of 162 bushels per acre. September’s forecast dropped one bushel from August, which may be attributed to hot and dry weather conditions in late August and early September. The September forecast was released before rains drenched parts of Iowa from September 16 to September 22, although Roger Elmore, corn specialist with Iowa State University Extension, said he believed the precipitation would not drastically change the yield forecast. Elmore also credited the predicted drop from August to September to more accurate readings, as corn crops are mostly mature and most ears are

filled out. He expected October’s forecast to be more accurate than September’s. Regionally, the report estimated northwest Iowa to experience an average of 175 bushels per acre, the most in the state. Northeast, east central and north central Iowa are all expected to see 167 bushels per acre or better. Central Iowa is forecast at 162 bushels per acre while southeast (158 bushels per acre) and west central (153 bushels per acre) are projected at less than 160 bushels per acre. Southwest Iowa looks to fall to 147 bushels per acre while south central Iowa could experience average yields at just 133 bushels per acre. YIELD, Page 6

September’s predictions for corn yields vary from region to region across Iowa. Timely precipitation and soil quality play a big part in the expected yields. Pictured above, a farmer in western Iowa begins combining corn. Photo by Bruce A. Binning

Spilling the beans about the importance of ag USB analysis shows impact to nation, states

by Gordon Wolf The Animal Agriculture Economic Analysis released by the United Soybean Board (USB) and funded by the soybean checkoff can be a valuable tool to further educate farmers and consumers and those who influence decisions how important animal agriculture and agriculture in general is to the national economy and to the economies of individual states, including Iowa. Laura Foell, of Schaller, a member of the United Soybean Board, said state soybean boards have been given the analysis and that the information has been made available to the USB’s partners who have the ability to talk to their legislators. Foell explained the USB cannot lobby. The USB, which administers soybean checkoff activities, is different from the American Soybean Association (ASA). While both work to improve the success of U.S. soybean farmers, the ASA works on state and national policy issues. The law prohibits checkoff dollars from being used to influence governmental policies. Foell said the Animal Agriculture Economic Analysis contains information to educate not only politicians but also consumers as it shows how important animal agriculture, including pork production, is to Iowa and Iowa’s economy. Foell said pork production in the United States grew by 20 percent in the last 10 years but in Iowa, pork production grew by more than 50 percent in the same time period. “As a non-livestock producer, I know how important this is,” she said. She said 79 percent of the soybean meal used in Iowa in 2011 went toward pork production, and if not for pork production, Iowa soybean farmers would see a lot of raw soybeans and soybean meal shipped overseas. She added that 3.4 million tons of soybean meal was used in Iowa for pork production during that year. Throughout the nation, poultry production uses 50 percent of the soybean meal produced in a year; pork production uses 25 percent. Soybeans have long been used in pork production, Foell said. “Soybeans have a lot of the essential amino acids that pork needs in order to grow,” she said. “Soybeans are a great protein source.” She said many farmers and consumers may find it interesting that when Iowa soybean farmers harvest their crop and the soybeans are crushed, two-thirds of the crop ends up as meal and one-third is used for other purposes, such as soybean oil. Seventy to 80 percent of soybean oil goes toward human use. Foell pointed to the importance of supporting animal agriculture at the local and state levels, stating that animal agriculture created more than 22,000 jobs in the last 10 years, resulting in more property and income taxes paid. Animal agriculture also accounted for a $5.5 billion increase in economic output for Iowa. “We’re in a whole chain together – livestock farmers, grain farmers, school systems that use property taxes, that state government, that used income taxes,” she said. “When the rest of the economy was slow, agriculture was the bright spot,” she said. “We have been number one in Iowa in soybean production for years. This year we were overtaken by Illinois. We had the drought, then flooding, and then back to drought.

A focus of the United Soybean Board (USB) is to develop new and more uses for U.S. soybeans. Information from Laura Foell, a USB director, is that one of every two rows of soybeans is exported. She said new, value-added uses of soybeans will create more jobs and help the economy. Pictured is a scene from last year’s soybean harvest. File photo by Bruce A. Binning

Every year is different in the business of agriculture.” Foell said among the development of the uses of soybeans has been research in ways to bring out more of the essential amino acids, to develop soybeans and soybean meal to lessen the smell from livestock facilities and to increase the energy derived from soybean meal. “We’re trying to tweak the soybean meal and soybeans in general, to increase production for yields and to increase the protein in the meal,” she said. Research into improvements in soybeans and soybean meal and for new uses for soybeans is paid for through the national checkoff. Every time a producer sells a bushel of soybeans, half a percent of the market price receives goes into a national pot of money, said Foell. As legislated by Congress, half of the money stays in the state where the soybeans were produced and the other half goes into the national pool of checkoff funds. Foell is one of 69 volunteer directors on the national board that look how to improve soybeans and also how to improve the bottom line for soybean producers. She said besides research, the USB is involved in promotion, development, communications and education, and that’s why the checkoff is important. “We’re looking for more uses and a better product,” Foell said. She added the USB is working on high oleic soy oil. Information from the USB’s website (unitedsoybean.org) said that high oleic soy oil is a promising new oil with no trans fats and better functionality than commodity soy oil. The soy checkoff plans to conduct in-person meetings and demonstrations with food-company representatives to market the oleic soy oil. Companies will be presented with the advantages of high oleic oil so they will be more likely to use the oil when it becomes available. Foell said finding new uses for soybeans is a task that the soybean board is involved with. She mentioned some recent new uses such as car

seats in Ford vehicles, carpet backing and backing for Astroturf. She added that soybeans are used for animal feed, of course, but the soybean board is working with aquaculture. Foell said overseas nations have a huge demand for protein to feed fish in the aquaculture industry as fish in the wild are declining. Information from the USB said that checkoff-funded research shows the growing aquaculture sector has the potential for strong growth as it is one of the fastest growing sectors in global animal agriculture. The USB has partnered with 11 Qualified State Soybean Boards (QSSBs) and the Soy Aquaculture Alliance (SAA) to focus on growing the U.S. aquaculture sector through the use of soy as a sustainable feed, information on the USB’s website said. Additional information from the USB said the U.S. Soybean Export Council is working with the China Ministries of Agriculture and Environmental Protection to introduce a high-intensity production system developed in the U.S. that can be adapted to existing pond systems in China and that the Iowa Soybean Association supported the introduction of this technology at the Pingway Fish Farm in eastern China. “We’re looking at many new ways to take our supply of soybeans and put it to use to help feed a growing world,” she said. Foell said currently, one of every two rows of soybeans is exported. “If we can develop more uses and send that valueadded production (overseas), it will develop more jobs here and will keep our economy going,” she said. “In my seven years on the board, this is something we’ve been looking at.” “I think the soybean farmers understand it’s a volunteer job,” Foell continued. USB directors are appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and can serve a maximum of three threeyear terms. Foell said, “The board is there to try to help with more uses of soybeans, to help the economy and help farmers do the best they can.”

Report predicts total soybean production down from last year by Greg Forbes Combines have hit fields throughout Iowa as farmers are ready to conclude a bizarre growing season. In the Soybean Brief, issued September 23 by the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA), ISA Board member Sheila Hebenstreit estimated that soybeans harvested in Green County during the weekend of September 14 yielded 30 to 35 bushels per acre. The early reports fall short of the statewide average yield estimate of 43 bushels per acre, down three bushels per acre from August’s forecast. Despite dropping in the last month, Iowa’s forecasted yield is nearly two bushels per acre better than the national average of 41.2. The national bushels per acre prediction also dropped since August but is up 1.6 bushels per acre compared to last year’s September yield forecast. Despite improved conditions, Iowa’s soybean production is projected to drop 9 million bushels compared to 2012. The report notes that pod clusters were lacking on Iowa bean plants. The drop in bushels per acre may be attributed to inclement weather throughout

the planting and growing seasons. Heavy rains delayed soybean planting into late June and many acres throughout the state were left unplanted. The rain gave way to a cool-weather drought that featured a July that produced less than an inch of rain statewide. On the third week of August, temperatures around the state climbed into the upper 90s, further complicating growing conditions for all crops, particularly late planted soybeans. The USDA September crop report showed that just 34 percent of Iowa’s soybean plants are at “good” or better condition. Just 69 percent of the soybeans have turned color whereas nearly 90 percent of plants would have colored this time of year. A mid-September rainfall helped alleviate some of the effects of the drought in some regions of the state. However, southeast Iowa reported 97 percent of topsoil moisture at “short” or “very short”. Information compiled from ISA Soybean Brief. The complete document is available as a PDF on ISA’s website at www.iassoybeans.com. The link to the document is located on the front page.

Coalition joins call for action on disaster aid denial Iowa agriculture, business and electric utilities, in partnership with government officials, joined together to urge action on a recent decision by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to deny federal disaster aid in the wake of devastating storms earlier this year. In the letter, which was submitted to members of Iowa’s congressional delegation during the week of September 15, the coalition asked that they join them in asking FEMA to reconsider a recent and drastic policy change impacting rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities. Coalition members stated, “When a partner, particularly one that is a governmental entity whose fundamental purpose is to help you get back on your feet after a disaster, backs out of its commitments, it can have a tremendous negative impact on our community’s entire fabric.” Following a late winter snow, ice and wind storm in April, a federally declared Major Disaster included Lyon, Osceola, Dickinson, Sioux and O’Brien counties. Three of Iowa’s electric cooperatives and two municipal utilities suffered damage. Instead of following established policy and practice, FEMA stated that federal disaster aid could not be issued because

the affected electric cooperatives did not conduct comprehensive laboratory testing on every mile of wire on an annual basis. The test in question is not performed as a matter of industry practice, or required to meet any industry or engineering standard. In addition to being denied disaster aid following this storm, FEMA’s decision could force Iowa’s electric cooperatives to repay tens of millions of dollars in previously awarded aid. Representatives from Iowa’s electric cooperatives traveled to Washington, D.C., earlier this week to meet with representatives from Iowa’s congressional delegation, which submitted a letter to FEMA earlier this week asking they meet with Iowa’s electric cooperatives and other stakeholders to find a resolution to the matter. “We’re pleased to have the support of such a broad coalition of organizations in the state who understand the devastating impact FEMA’s decision will have on rural Iowa,” said Marion Denger, president of the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives. “We are hopeful that FEMA will realize their decision is not only unfair, it’s not in the best interest of Iowa communities and our member-consumers.”

Birthdays, beef, reunions and homecomings My husband had a birthday this month. (He’s 49 now. Shhh. Don’t tell him I told you. It’s the last year where he’s still climbing up the hill.) It’s my long-standing belief that whomever has the birthday gets to pick what activity they want to do or what they would like to have for supper. A few years ago, my birthday was close to a weekend. It was my 40th, and I had found out that an exhibit based on “The Chronicles of Narnia” was going to be in the Science Center at Union Station in Kansas City. The only shot I had to get the boys down there to see it was to choose that place on my birthday. So, in an effort to escape the usual 40th birthday shenanigans, we made our way to Kansas City and walked through the Science Center and the Narnia exhibit. It was awesome! We also were able to see works on exhibit by a Lego artist which was pretty fun for the boys as well. His birthday was on a Saturday this year, so I asked him if he wanted to go out to eat or if he wanted me to grill as steak. He does love his beef. If I let him, he’d probably eat beef for every single meal. When we took our oldest child to Washington, D.C. a few years ago as a reward for reaching his Star rank in Boy Scouts, he had beef for every meal. While my son

Correctionville farm hosts Mexican meat buyers Seventeen meat buyers from Mexico learned about Iowa beef production on a tour of the Triple U Ranch near Correctionville on September 10. Hosted by the Utesch family –brothers Craig, Brad and Kirk and their families - the buyers checked the pastures to see the cow/calf operation and then visited the feedlot to learn about the finishing end of the beef business. The buyers represented the Mexican National Meat Processors Association and 12 companies in Mexico that purchase U.S. beef. Past Iowa trade teams to Mexico have developed relationships with the buyers and encourage them to visit Iowa on a return trade trip. “Craig and I had an opportunity to attend a meat trade mission to Mexico several years ago where we met some of the same people who came to our farm. We’re proud to show them how three generations of the Utesch family make their living by raising cattle, crops and caring for our land,” said Elaine Utesch, Iowa Beef Industry Council director.

USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is accepting applications in Iowa field offices for three special program initiatives through October 4 - the Organic Initiative, Seasonal High Tunnel Initiative, and On-Farm Energy Initiative. Through these initiatives, NRCS provides technical help and financial assistance at a higher rate than many other conservation programs. Each initiative includes its own set of eligible conservation practices. They are funded through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) – USDA’s largest and most popular conservation program. Through EQIP, eligible farmers address soil, water and related natural resource concerns on private agricultural lands. Five percent of EQIP financial assistance dollars are set aside for beginning farmers, and another five percent is reserved for socially-disadvantaged farmers. NRCS accepts applications for all programs on a continuous basis, but recently announced October 4 is the first signup cutoff deadline to fund fiscal year conservation program applications in Iowa for fiscal year 2014. More information about these initiatives includes: On-Farm Energy Initiative – enables a producer to find ways to conserve energy on the farm through an on-farm energy audit, providing financial assistance to implement various measures and practices recommended in the audit. Practices include typical conservation such as cover crops, no-till and windbreaks to very practical energy improvements like high efficiency lighting for aging livestock facilities and more efficient motors for grain dryers. During fiscal year 2013, NRCS provided more than $800,000 Iowa farmers through the Energy Initiative. Organic Initiative – provides assistance to certified organic producers and those transitioning to organic production to meet their conservation goals. Examples of eligible practices include prescribed grazing, nutrient management, pest management and conservation crop rotations. Since October 2012, NRCS has provided more than $500,000 to Iowa producers covering nearly 1,200 acres through the Organic Initiative. Seasonal High Tunnel Initiative – provides financial and technical assistance to producers to build high tunnels, helping to extend the growing season for high value crops in an environmentally safe manner. Iowa producers received about $335,000 since October 2012 to fund 53 seasonal high tunnels. For additional information about these and other NRCS programs in Iowa, visit www.ia.nrcs.usda.gov and click on “Programs.” Individuals can also visit their local NRCS office located in each county’s USDA Service Center.

More than $7,600 to be awarded at Beef Scholarship Extravaganza

“We put them in our pickups and drove right out into the pastures,” said Craig Utesch. “They had so many questions about our cattle, our machinery, and how we raise our crops. They were surprised we had to harvest all our crops before it snowed and also wanted to know how many crops we get each year! And of course they loved the ribeye steaks that the Woodbury County Cattlemen

grilled for our supper.” Coordinated by the Iowa Economic Development Authority, the biennial visit includes tours of Iowa meat processing plants, livestock farms and special business meetings with meat exporting companies in Des Moines and Sioux City. The “Meet the Buyers” sessions allow Iowa beef and pork suppliers to meet privately with the buyers and negotiate business.

Twenty Iowa companies registered to meet with the buyers during the week of September 9-11. Mexico is the second largest U.S. beef export market in volume and third in value. Recent reports show exports of beef and beef variety meats added almost $273 to the value of a fed steer in July. Beef export activities in Iowa are funded by the $1-per-head beef checkoff.

The 19th annual Beef Scholarship Extravaganza will take place Friday, December 13, at Kildee Hall on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames. More than $7,600 in scholarships will be awarded. The deadline for teams to enter the competition is November 1. The contest, sponsored by the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation, is open to teams of high school juniors and seniors; however, team members do not need to be from the same school. Extravaganza tests student knowledge at 10 stations that cover all aspects of beef cattle management and beef marketing issues. Stations include: Handling and Health; Nutrition; Marketing (Beef cut evaluation); Seedstock Merchandising; Job Interview; Keep-Cull Replacement Heifers; Reproduction; Beef Management Challenge; Credit and Finance; Beef Industry Issues and Advocacy. Station protocols will be sent to registered teams and are posted on the ICF website, www.iowacattelemensfoundation.org. Registration information is also on the site. Scholarship dollars won at the Extravaganza can be used at any university or community college. In addition, if the student will be attending Iowa State University, Kirkwood Community College, Hawkeye Community College, Muscatine Community College, Des Moines Area Community College or Iowa Lakes Community College, those institutions offer additional matching scholarships to students on the winning teams. The entry fee is $200 per team; and a team can consist of two or three students. The fee covers noon lunch, snacks and an Extravaganza t-shirt. For more information call the ICF offices at 515-2962266, or email sarah@iabeef.org.

IOWA FARM AND RANCH STATEWIDE EDITION

Rain helps a little but wind hurts more Strong winds whip through Iowa as harvest nears by Greg Forbes A mid September windstorm, coupled with a summer drought and May snowstorm, completed what has been a bizarre crop season from a weather standpoint. The week of Sunday, September 15 to Saturday, September 21 brought heavy winds and rain throughout the state. Iowa State Climatologist Harry Hillaker stated the statewide average rainfall for that period was slightly more than half an inch, the wettest week this year since late June. That Thursday alone areas in Mills County recorded nearly three inches of rain while a majority of areas stretching from southwest to central Iowa recorded more than an inch of rain. Northwest Iowa was not as fortunate as some locations received less than one tenth of an inch. Hillaker did not mention sections in northeast Iowa amongst those who enjoyed a plentiful rain but the weekly Iowa drought monitor map released September 19 by the National Drought Mitigation Center indicated northwest Iowa is comparatively in less of a drought than the rest of the state. The mid-September rain helped boost the year to date statewide precipitation average to 30.12 inches, nearly 1.5 inches above the annual mark for this date. On September 23, 2012, Hillaker said the statewide average was at a barren 20.59 inches of precipitation year to date. While Iowans welcomed the rain, it may have fallen too late in the growing season to improve crops. The crop summary for the week ending September 22 issued by the USDA reported that crop conditions improved slightly with 37 percent of corn planted reported in “good” or “excellent” condition and 34 percent of soybeans planted at “good” or “excellent” condition. Hillaker said the rains fell too late to show significant improvement but crop conditions may be

based on overall appearance. The rain may have caused some corn and soybean plants to green or allowed some ears to gain additional kernels. Despite the rain that fell, Hillaker said current moisture levels in soil on September 24 may actually be less than the same date last year. “It may not be that much difference because of the dryness the last two to three months,” he said. “We had quite a bit more rain last August.” Hillaker added, however, that the rain received earlier this year mixed with intermittent rains in the late summer have allowed water levels in fields and streams to stay steady. “That extra 10 inches of rain shows in river levels and farm ponds,” he said. “It hasn’t been dry enough, long enough to have a big impact on those things and this late in the season, they aren’t likely to dry out a whole lot more.” While most crops were too far into the growing season to benefit from much needed rain some plants were ripe for the picking when accompanying winds swept through parts of Iowa. Hillaker explained 19 counties received heavy winds along with the rainfall. Some reporting counties estimated gusts up to 70 miles per hour. Hillaker added that the highest recorded gust, reported by the Ankeny airport, was measured at 66 miles per hour. Mark Licht, a field agronomist with Iowa State University Extension who serves counties in central Iowa, said corn plants were susceptible to wind damage because of the period in the growing season and dry conditions. According to Hillaker, Dallas and Polk counties received the most amount of wind-related damage, both of which are in Licht’s service area. “Most of it was just wind damage, I didn’t hear of much hail damage but be-

cause we’re so late in the season, the heavy wind just lays it flat,” Licht said. Licht continued that he did not have an estimate as to the number of acres damaged but described the loss as considerable. “We don’t know what the acreage is right now but we do know it was a fairly significant area,” Licht said. The area damage included Winterset, Adel, Dallas Center and east to the Des Moines area. Licht said the crops damaged may still be harvestable but heavily depended on the maturity of the plant. “It can probably be salvaged if they (farmers) can get it picked up. It depends on how close to maturity it was,” he said. “If it was mature and was dried down to a certain extent, it will last better than that corn that’s laid down and isn’t mature. It (damage) basically kills the plant and stops the maturity process.” He added that crops that are still growing and have been blown over by wind carry enough moisture to be vulnerable to ear mold. The crop report showed that crops not damaged by wind are nearing harvest ready. The crop report stated that some farmers have already begun to harvest their earliest planted corn and soybean crops. However, corn crops, at 35 percent mature, are well behind the average rate for this time of year. Hillaker said the late planting date along with a cooler growing season will result in a later than usual harvest, especially compared to last year. Hillaker credited the early harvest of 2012 to the early planting season and abnormally dry growing season. “Last year, we had a record warm and dry spring so everything got planted quite early and it developed quickly,” Hillaker stated. “Moisture-wise, there wasn’t much need to wait for the crop to dry down so that accelerated the harvest even further.”

Mother nature’s mood swings May snows and September heat waves highlighted the weather pattern of 2013 that in all reality, has followed no pattern. Multiple interviews with Iowa State Climatologist Harry Hillaker have revealed that 2013 has had temperature swings and misplaced weather occurrences rarely seen since Iowa weather records began. The historic drought of 2012 continued into the late winter until record precipitation in April all but quenched dry conditions. The statewide average precipitation for April was measured at 6.52 inches, breaking the old record of 6.25 inches set in April 1999. A snowstorm welcomed the advent of May, dumping nearly a foot of snow in Lake Mills, Forest City and Britt. But just more than a week later, all memory of the late blizzard evaporated along with the snow as areas on May 14 recorded the first triple digit temperatures of the year. May not only saw a blizzard and 100 degree heat but was also doused by a statewide average of 9 inches of rain. The heavy rain eventually pushed planting season well into June. Some field agronomists with Iowa State University Extension estimated that as many as half of the soybean acres in their respective regions had not been planted by the first week of June. Many fields remained unplanted. By the time farmers were able to fill suitable acres, the rain disappeared. Although July finished with a statewide average of less than an inch of precipitation for the month, July also ended more than a degree below average normal temperatures. Hillaker said July 2013 saw an average of just five days with 90 degree temperatures, a mark reached and exceeded more than 20 times in July 2012. July 27 and 28 even saw lows in areas across the state drop into the low 40s. Some weather stations even reported record lows. When late July highs barely reached 70 degrees, Hillaker estimated that Iowans may have seen the last of oppressive heat but the cool jet stream yielded to a high pressure dome of warm temperatures. The last week in August brought the first 100 degree temperatures of the official summer and temperatures in the upper 90s persisted into September. On September 9, areas in Iowa once again recorded triple digit temperatures but by September 21, other locations had already reported the first frost of the fall. Rain once again returned to the state on the third week of September as some areas reported nearly 5 inches of rain for the week. Thursday, September 19 proved to be the wildest day of the week, dumping 3 inches of rain on some towns and blowing through with gusts near 70 miles per hour. As the calendar nears the end of the year, the wild, unpredictable weather has shown Iowans may be in for an exciting winter.

Farm Bill may not get to president until late October, Grassley says

by Gordon Wolf During his Capitol Hill report, a taped interview with one radio station and one newspaper on September 19, U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley stated he believes a new farm bill won’t get to the president’s desk until late October. In May the U.S. Senate passed its version of the farm bill, which included provisions for agriculture and food stamps. The farm bill is normally passed by the Senate and House as one bill, not split into the components of agriculture provisions and the nutrition program. But in July, the House passed an agriculture-only farm bill and last week passed a nutrition bill. Grassley said the bill will now go to a conference committee of House and Senate members. “I suppose it won’t get done by September 30 (the expiration date for the current Farm Bill) but not too far out there,” Grassley said. Last year the current five-year farm bill, which was passed in 2008, was extended for one year. Grassley added, “I think they’re going to get a compromise, and there’s not much compromising to be done on the farm bill (agriculture part), basically do away with direct payments and keep crop insurance.” He said other minor differences exist in the agriculture provisions, but these are only minor, compared to the major differences between the Senate and House versions on how much to save in the nutrition program. The Senate’s bill proposes $4 billion in savings and the House version proposes $40 billion in savings. “Somewhere between $4 and $40 billion you have to find a compromise and pass it because you’re not going to get a farm bill through the House that doesn’t have food stamps in it,” Grassley said. He added, “I would expect we’ll be getting a farm bill to the president sometime in late October.”

Mike Naig is new On-line Extension resources answer deputy secretary of questions about late harvest, low prices Iowa ag department Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey announced Wednesday that Mike Naig has been hired as the new deputy secretary for the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. He will start with the department on September 4. Naig previously served as manager of state and local government affairs for Monsanto. He has been active in the agribusiness industry for over 13 years, also having served in public policy roles for CropLife America based in Washington, D.C.; the Agribusiness Association of Iowa; and the Iowa Biotechnology Association. As Deputy Secretary, Naig will assist in management responsibilities for the Department focused on the areas of personnel and budget. He will also support the Department’s efforts to be accessible to Iowans by traveling regularly to represent the Department at meetings across the state. Naig grew up on a farm near Cylinder in northwest Iowa and is a graduate of Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, with degrees in biology and political science. He and his wife Jaime have two boys.

Members of the Extension crops team from Iowa State University responded to producer questions related to the late spring, dry summer and slow crop development by hosting meetings in north central Iowa last week. Extension field agronomists Mark Johnson and Paul Kassel discussed crop maturity, crop drying, potential effects of an early frost, and pre-harvest preparations at meetings in Clarion, Wesley and Sheffield. Charles Hurburgh, Extension grain quality and handling specialist, spoke of 2013 crop quality, including moisture and test weight variability, potential diseases, and the best practices for handling and storing the crop. Iowa State specialists Chad Hart, Extension economist, and Kelvin Leibold, Extension farm management specialist, reviewed the 2013-2014 crop market outlook at the meetings. For the benefit of those who did not attend the meetings, ISU Extension and Outreach made video recordings of the presentations available on the Iowa Grain Quality Initiative website at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/grain/. • Crop Maturity – Mark Johnson (9 min) https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/p8hjxoaw3x5/ • Grain Quality and Storage – Charles Hurburgh

Beginning and aspiring farmers invited to apply for PFI’s savings incentive program Beginning and aspiring farmers are invited to apply for Practical Farmers of Iowa’s (PFI) 2014-2015 Savings Incentive Program. Applications are due by October 4. The two-year program pairs beginning and aspiring farmers with experienced mentors; offers participants the chance to save money and receive matching funds while learning how to build a profitable farm; and seeks to support the next generation of farmers through guidance and a firm knowledge base on which build their farm businesses. To access an application online, visit www.practicalfarmers.org or call the PFI office at 515-232-5661 to request a copy through the mail. Up to 25 applicants will

be admitted in this fourth round of programming. Those admitted will be part of the Class of 2015, and are selected by a committee of Practical Farmers members using a scoring system that rewards a noticeable commitment to developing applicants’ independent farm goals. All farm enterprises, sizes, production methods and marketing practices are eligible. Selections will be made in early November. To date, about 60 people have been or are currently active in the program. The Savings Incentive Program works by encouraging enrollees to save up to $100 per month for two years. After 24 months and completion of all program requirements, participants will earn a dollar-for-dollar

match on money saved up to $2,400, for a possible $4,800 to use toward purchasing a farm asset. As part of the program, participants will be paired with a mentor, with whom they must meet in-person at least three times in the first year. Participants must also: Open and manage a savings account with Practical Farmers’ partner bank Create or fine-tune a business or whole-farm plan Attend at least four PFI events per year (online, on-farm or in person). PFI events include online trainings, field days, conferences, workshops and more Conduct quarterly reviews via email, phone or in-person with PFI staff to check on progress toward goals and program require-

ments Complete all forms and requested information on time “Through this program, Practical Farmers of Iowa and its supporters have forced me to look at our farm from a completely different perspective,” says Karla Hanson, a current enrollee who raises sheep near Monona. “Without the deadlines and goals required of SIP participation, I would not have moved forward with our farming plans as quickly.” Jordan Scheibel, another current enrollee who grows produce and herbs at Middle Way Farm near Grinnell, said applying to the Savings Incentive Program helped solidify his farming intentions. “When I applied, I was on the fence about how committed I was

to farming. Getting accepted made my commitment public.” He added that entering the program made him feel like he was “now on the hook” to follow through on building his farm business. “It was the necessary kick I needed to solidify my intentions and realize that farming was possible, and that I had the support I needed to be successful at it. This program has clearly made a difference in my life and my ability to move forward with my farm,” he said. Requirements for the program are modified this year to consider those not yet farming on their own. To be eligible for the Savings Incentive Program, applicants must either be farming on their own now and have farmed for five

or fewer years, or have some experience working for a farm business. This includes, but is not limited to: internships, apprenticeships, working as an hourly or salaried employee or working on the family farm. Applicants must also reside in Iowa or farm in the state (out-of-state residents are eligible, as long as they are farming in Iowa), and be members of Practical Farmers of Iowa (candidates can join at www.practicalfarmers. org or by calling 515-2325661). For more information about the Savings Incentive Program or application process, contact Marc Strobbe, PFI farm viability coordinator, at 515-2325661 or marc@practicalfarmers.org.

A visit to the Clay County Fair

Patricia Higby, energy education and outreach coordinator with the University of Northern Iowa, records Dawson Miller’s wind power as he uses his breath to power a miniature wind generator Sunday at the Clay County Fair in Spencer. Miller and his father, Gordy Miller, of Storm Lake, visited the wind energy displays at Central Park on the fairgrounds. Higby helps teachers teach about wind energy and other types of energy by providing solar car kits, wind turbine kits, a pedal power energy bike and by providing classes and workshops through the Fabulous Resources for Energy Education (F.R.E.E.) program at UNI. The kits are loaned at no charge. Once the teachers have completed their lesson, they send them back to the F.R.E.E. program. For more information, educators can contact Higby at freeceee@uni.edu or call her at 319-273-6012. Sunday’s theme at the fair was Iowa Wind Energy Day, sponsored by the Iowa Wind Energy Association.

YIELD, from Page 1 Elmore said northwest Iowa’s high prediction may be attributed to its soil quality and timely precipitation. “They (northwest Iowa) picked up some rains we haven’t had in the rest of the state and they’ve got good soils,” he said. “Normally, if you’re looking at the upper sixth of the state, they are usually a higher productivity that the rest of the state.” Although the statewide predicted average is nearly 17 bushels per acre below the 30 year trend line, Elmore said farmers can expect far better yields than last year’s September estimate of 137. Elmore said the improvement is due to consistent spring precipitation and a milder, albeit abnormally dry, summer. “The rain in the spring alleviated the problems so it wasn’t quite as intense and stressful (as last year),” he said. “The time for silking was a lot more conducive but since then, we’ve lost moisture.” While snow and heavy rain throughout April, May and into June delayed a significant amount of planting as late as mid-June, some farmers were able to plant relatively early. Elmore said some farmers have begun harvesting those fields planted before heavy rains wreaked havoc

on progress. But due to heavy rains followed by hot, dry conditions, early harvest reports have not been favorable. Areas near Carroll County and Ames have reported yields below or slightly above 100 bushels per acre. “It was stressed out. Some of the fields coming out already are the ones that are stressed more,” Elmore said. “They will yield less than the average because of that.” Elmore said due to the inconsistent weather and relatively harsh conditions, farmers are advised to carefully analyze fields and get stressed crops out of fields as soon as possible. “We really advise that they (farmers) are walking fields and looking for the fields that have the most stress because the stalk quality is most likely very poor,” El-

more said. “The longer the stressed crop stands, the more likely it’s going to fall down and make harvest difficult. If they’re ready, pull them.” Despite stress last year, Iowa was able to fair better than a majority of corn belt states. At 165 bushels an acre, Minnesota was one of the only states the recorded a higher statewide yield than Iowa. Some states struggled to reach 100 bushels per acre and Missouri recorded a sparse 95 bushels per acre. Elmore said recent projections this year have shown Iowa falling below yields of other states. Elmore added that this time of year, the effects of weather throughout the growing season show the unpredictability of agriculture. “Every year is different,” he said.

Unlike vertical tillage, the Joker is a true residue management system. That means it perfectly sizes residue and incorporates it into the soil for fast decomposition. The Joker also consolidates the soil and promotes faster warming. This helps manage moisture better and gets you planting faster. • Manage heavy residue/stubble • Fast seedbed preparation • Pasture/hayland/CRP renovation • Manure/Fertilizer incorporation
